ABSTRACT
The article examines the application of the constitutional principle of access and openness to government information in Finland. It offers an overview of the inception of the country's first law governing the freedom of publishing and the right of access to officials documents under the Swedish rule in 1776, and explores the different amendments to this law. Moreover, it also discusses several factors which contribute to the parliament's decision to reform the country's accessibility legislation.
